Walking one by one / 1人ずつ散歩 Jul. 20

We simply took many walks today.

今日は散歩ばっかりして終わった〜。

After the morning walk, it's time for a nap.

My arm was hanging from the sofa and this boy used my arm as a pillow. lol

あさんぽ 終わって お昼寝タイム。

ソファの上から手を垂らしたら 勝手に枕にされてしまった(笑)
Mato


Today we took a walk one by one for a change.

Each got a short walk in the afternoon since it was really hot.

About 40 minutes walk each in the evening.

I noticed both of them focused on me better and were able to walk by me most of the time.

It'd be nice if they could do it when they both walked together.

Well, I'll work more on my leadership💪

By the way, I actually walked double than they did...I was thinking to chill out today but I guess nice to do some extra exercise.

今日は趣向を変えて 1人づつお散歩。

暑いから午後は短い散歩。

夜は40分くらいずつ。

1人ずつの方が私に集中できてしっかり横に付いて歩けるのぉ。

2人一緒に歩くときもできるようになればいいなぁ。

マミーもっとリーダーシップ頑張る💪

ってかマミーにとっては2人より2倍歩いて ゆったりしようと思ってたけどよく歩いた日になったぞ。

The usual pack +1 / いつものメンバーとプラス1 Jul. 19

Morning walk with Chili again😆

今朝もシリィとお散歩!!😆


We bumped into little Raiya, a miniature schnauzer girl.

途中でミニチュアシュナウザーのライアに会ったよ〜。

Kaiya


Raiya joined and we all walked together.  It was a fun morning walk!

途中までライアも一緒にお散歩〜。楽しい朝の散歩だった!


During the day... found two dogs on the floor...

日中。犬が落ちてた・・・。


I was about to sunbathe on the balcony while reading a book...someone took my place😕

バルコニーに寝転がって本読みながら日焼けでもしようと思ったら 陣取られたぞ😕
Mato


He gave me the spot on the balcony eventually and moved inside but decided to take a nap by the door to the balcony.  This boy always wants to be close to mommy💙

バルコニーは最終的に譲ってくれて バルコニーへの入り口のところで昼寝することにしたらしい。 いつでもマミーの近くにいたい甘えん坊男子💙
Mato


In the evening, something triggered Kaiya....poking Mato again. lol

夕方 またKaiyaがちょっかい出し始めたwww



Hot day again.

This country needs no air conditioners usually... the life is so hard without an air conditioner when it's this hot everyday....

All the windows are open 24hr and using all the fans to circulate the air 24hr now👍

いや〜 今日も暑かった〜。

ってかエアコンが必要ない国で毎日こんなに暑いと家の中が大分暑いぞ〜。

窓全開&ありったけの扇風機をずーっと回して 空気の循環してま〜す👍

The early bird... / 早起きは... Jul. 18

You get lucky when you take a walk early in the morning.

Guess who we bumped into.  Chilli!!!!

早起きは三文の徳〜。

今朝はシリィに偶然会って。
Chilli and Kaiya


Then Simba, too😆

シンバにも会った〜😆
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (middle)                    Simba (right)


Since we took early morning walk, it'll be too long to wait until evening when it's not too hot for the next walk.  Although it's really hot, we decided to go out around 3 pm just for a quick walk...at least I was thinking that...

Here we are...walked this far to the woods.

朝の散歩が早かったから 次の散歩を涼しくなる夕方まで待つと長いから 暑くても15時くらいにちょこっと回ってくるはずが・・・

森まで来さされた。
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


Then farther to the cliff.

森通り越して 崖のとこまで来ちゃった〜。
Kaiya


So many people!

でも 人がいっぱい。
Mato


Our spot is taken anyways...we're not going down today, guys.

いつもの私たちのスポットは取られちゃってるし 今日は下まで降りないで行こう〜。
Kaiya


"NO!!"  This girl sat tight and didn't seem like moving at all unless we went down..stubborn kid...

ヤダ!! で〜んと座り込むヒト・・・Kaiyaのわがまま始まった〜。
Kaiya


"I know you want to go down but there are too many people around and I can't let you off the leash and you can't run around.  It's no fun, Kaiya."

どうしても降りたいようですが あんなに人がいっぱいいたら 君たちリード取ってあげられないし 走り回れないし 無理ですよぉ〜。
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


Finally, we could get out there and walked a little further ahead.

Found a spot where we can get in the water...of course, they didn't want to.

I carried them in anyways and wet their tummies so they were able to cool down.

やっとこさ 先に進んでちょっと水に入れるスポット発見。

だけど 2人とも入りたがらないから 抱えて入れてお腹を少し冷やしてクールダウン。
Mato (left)                             Kaiya (right)


Over 30°C again but they were energetic.  When we got home, it was already 6 pm.

こんなに暑いのに元気な2人だ。うち帰って来たら18時になってた。
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


Somehow Kaiya was still energetic or excited after the walk.

なんか帰って来ても 元気なKaiya。
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


Poking Mato a lot.

Matoにちょっかいを出しまくり。



Mato just let Kaiya do whatever. lol

Matoもケッコーされるがままw
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


It's about time!

反撃するのかと思えば
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)


Nope.  He doesn't even get up. 😂

やっぱり寝転がったまんまかい!
Kaiya (left)                             Mato (right)

Taking it easy / ゆったりな日 Jul. 17

Yep, of course. it's gotten over 30°C again. What in the hell is going on??

今日ももちろん気温は30度越え。本当どうしちゃったんだろ😑
Mato


Mato's shedding a lot lately.

Matoくん 最近めっちゃ毛が抜けてます。
Mato


Kaiya's not shedding but she likes to get a lot of grass on her.

Kaiyaは毛は抜けてないけど 芝をつけるのが趣味。



We went out yesterday little farther than usual and spent a lot of time outside.  Today we took it easy.  Sat by the water in our neighborhood in the morning.  It felt good feeling the breeze.

昨日は朝から頑張ってちょっとした遠出を下から 今朝はゆったり近所の水辺で涼んできたよぉ〜。
Kaiya

Mato


It gets super hot in the afternoon.  We waited to take a walk until six in the evening.  The temperature dropped and it wasn't bad ;)

午後はマジ暑いから お散歩は夕方6時くらいにしたら 大分暑さが引いて散歩しやすかった〜。


I guess everyone is taking his/her vacation right now.  Almost no one's around.  Kaiya got to walk by herself.

今みんな夏休みなんだろうね 誰も歩いてないから Kaiyaさんには1人で散歩してもらったよ。
Kaiya

Kaiya


Kaiya really knows where she wants to go every walk.

This time she wanted to come to the woods so here it is😂

Kaiyaさんいつも行きたいとこがはっきりしてる子。

今日は森まで来たかったらしいので はい 来ました😂

Vacation has begun / 夏休みスタート Jul. 16

Today's the first day of mommy's 3 week summer vacation.

We took the buss in the morning.

今日はマミーの3週間の夏休みの初日。

朝からお弁当持ってバスに乗って・・・
Mato

Kaiya


Got off the buss and kept going on foot.

バスを降りたら ちょいとテクテク歩いて・・・
Mato (left)            Kaiya (right)

Kaiya (left)            Mato (right)


A little farther.

もう少し。
Mato (left)            Kaiya (right)


We are here!

到着!
Kaiya


Yes. Beach!

ビーチ!
Mato



Not too far from where a lot of people were, we found a tiny beach for ourselves.

Almost no one came.  Perfct!!

It was too hot.  I made them swim ;p

Kaiya first.

人がいっぱいいるところから そんなに離れてないとこに誰もこない場所見つけたら 貸切状態。

暑いので2人にも泳いでもらったよ。

まずKaiya。


Next.  Mato.

Both of them can swim very well but they don't like going in the water.

I guess they don't like to get wet. 

But this year, it's so much hotter than usual.  They'd better learn to get in the water to cool down.

次はMato。

2人とも上手に泳げるのに 濡れるのが嫌なんだろぉなぁ。

でも今年は暑すぎる。水に浸かって クールダウンすることを覚えないとこの夏は厳しいぞ。


A tennis ball was washed ashore.

Why not use it, right? 

Both of them don't really get interested in playing with a ball usually.

Somehow they like to pick it up when I throw in the water.

Weird but we had fun.

This one is Mato.

どこからともなく流れてきたボール発見!

ありがたく使わせていただきまぁ〜す!

陸だと興味ないボールも 水に投げると取りに行くヒトタチ。

変なのw

こちらはMato。


I have to throw it not too far since Kaiya doesn't go farther in as Mato does.

KaiyaはMatoより水に入りに行かないから 近くに投げてw


After a couple of ours at the beach, we took a walk a little.  Too hot.  Took a break right a way😁

数時間ビーチで楽しんだ後は少し歩いて 暑いからすぐ休憩😁
Kaiya

Found a nice little spot in the shade by the water with nice breeze.

日陰で風もあっていい気持ち。
Mato


Nice view, too.  We stayed here for a little while.

景色もいいからしばらくここにいたよ〜。



Time to continue the walk.

We got up on a hill.  Seriously burning hot.

Though both of them were super energetic!!

さて 散歩再開。

丘の上まで登ってきたけど あっち〜。

にも関わらず 2人とも元気だ!
Mato (left)            Kaiya (right)


 Through the woods.

今度は森を抜けて。


It's nice and cool in the woods.

森の中は日陰にだから まだいい感じね。


We drunk up the water I carried.  It's time to go home.

We walked to the nearest sub station then took the train and bus to get home.

I gotta carry more water next time.

持ってきた水をみんなで飲み干しちゃったから もうアウト。

最寄りの駅まで歩いて電車とバスに乗って帰ったよぉ〜。

次はもっと水持ってこ。
